Don't know him, so I can't say for sure.
This picture is on the 3rd page of the living section. Article about drinking after running the race. Not really a full bunny suite, but close.

For those that don't fill up for running it, a good goof off plan is to catch the start, then shortcut through the quarte to Rampart.
Under the Claiborn overpass on Esplanade there is usually a nice little party going on if you want to stop and get your drink on.
Last year Drago's had their firetruck out there and jaeger, beer, margerita shots, etc were being given out. Musicians playing too.
It's def. a good place to take a nice long break.
